area, john kerry originally was floated secretary of state. now it looks like he may be potentially a candidate for secretary of defense. >> this is a great segue. >> john kerry is not involved. >> but he's a person who had sex in the past. so there's your segue. >> we're asking about john kerry. maybe there's an issue with leon panetta has to stay around for a few months because tough replace petraeus and all shuffling that has to go around. but eventually panetta is going to lead as defense secretary. but john kerry would be first in line to succeed him. what i find interesting is if it's true, it means the white house is not buying into the idea you can't pick john kerry because it opens up the senate seat and scott brown wins the senate seat. >> do you like kerry at defense as an idea? >> he's as qualified as anybody if he wants that. i just feel like if you want him for that job and you think he's a good match, don't be scared off by this guy. >> 100% agree. >> if he's the right guy for the job, that's where he belongs. >> i tried to throw steve a life raft so you didn't have t
among them. someone like john kerry, not personally close to the president, not a champion in the building, she was always the person who had the inside track. this is a fight and to the point that hugo made, i think the republicans think this is a fight worth happening, not that she went out there -- forget what john mccain's personal invective, not that she spoke off the cuff but reading from talking points and their argument is those talks points were designed to mislead the american people. there's no question, i don't think there's anybody in the administration that think that period was well handled by the administration in terms of what it knew about what happened, how it conveyed it to the american people. it's been bubbling for weeks, it's true that they are going to personalize it on her. the question to alex, alex's question, at this point do you want to fight this battle and my guess is there's going to be at lot of whipping and the question is going to be, i think they will fight this bat physical they think they can win it. if they think they are going to lose
. >> there is speculation that brown could make another run for national if president obama names senator john kerry to his cabinet as a possible secretary of state or perhaps defense secretary. senator brown is also rumored to be a contender for massachusetts governor in 2014 but he insists his immediate future is focused outside of politics. >> my job is to make sure there is a smooth transition. there is not an opener for governor nor is there an opener for senator but there is an opening for a dad and a husband and that's the role that i want to play. >> by the way, senator brown added that his democratic colleague, john kerry, would make and to use his words, a "excellent secretary of state." we'll keep you posted. >>> this morning nearly 9,000 homes or businesses in new york remain without power. it's now two weeks after sandy came ashore. yesterday the head of the long island power authority announced his resignation effective at the end of the year. he says it has nothing to do with the harsh criticism his utility company has received following hurricane sandy. of course, not. governor andrew cuomo
and the washington shuffle with panetta and clinton saying they want out of the second term. will john kerry now go to the pentagon? can susan rice be confirmed as secretary of state? and will nancy pelosi run for leader again? and what a welcome to washington the new class of congress arriving just in time for a classic d.c. scandal. and a different fall from grace, jon stewart, crowns himself the worst journalist in the world. >> anyone out there who thought i may have actual journalists instincts i give you a snippet of my interview. >> he loves serving, to be in the arena. i thought i was going to test him, he tested me, crushed his pelvis. he wanted to help me with the project. he can turn water into bottled water. >> the whole time i was staring at how defined her arms were. [ inaudible ]. i am the worst jurmist in the world. for god's sake the title of her book was "all in." she might as well -- >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. we begin with the broadening and complicated scope of the petraeus investigation that has now ensnared his successor, commander of all forces in a
. >>> there are reports this morning that senator john kerry could be asked to be the new defense secretary. here to talk about the obama cabinet shuffle is democratic strategist and former adviser to hillary clinton and john kerry and msnbc contributor robert tran em. >> good morning. you worked for john kerry, secretary of state, secretary of defense? what do you think. >> i helped support his presidential campaign. he's an unbelievably qualified leader for either of those posts. >> he wants secretary of state, doesn't he? >> those are the rumors. i don't know. i never asked him that. people like to post a lot of rur morse versus what happens between the two parties. clearly his skill set would be put well in either of those positions. >> the washington post reports that susan rice may be the top pick for secretary of state. senate republicans warn that she'll have a tough time because of her role in benghazi. is this a fight that either republicans or the white house want? >> i'm not sure that the democrats or the white house really want this fight per se, given the talk of bipartis bipartisanship. at
? they include senator john kerry or u.n. ambassador susan rice. of course, senator john kerry recently spent a lot of time with president obama. he helped him on debate preparations. another person who has been very vocal about wanting to leave if the president has a second term. treasury secretary timothy geithner. he's been the president's right hand man when it comes to the economy. he helped bring the economy back from the brink in 2009. possible replacements for geithner include the current chief of staff jack lou, who is widely respected within this administration but also within washington, d.c. another person who might potentially be leaving is defense secretary leon panetta. leon panetta is someone who might be ready to retire from what has been a long and distinguished career in politics. dates back to 1977 when he was in the house of representatives. possible replacements include his deputy secretary and also michelle flourney, the former undersecretary of defense. and then attorney general eric holder possibly leaving. possible replacements for him include homeland security secre
financier, boone pickens, these were the funders of the swiftboat veterans against john kerry. they've been with him a long time. he clearly promised them something in the 2012 race you, and he had not delivered. >> he doesn't issue a mea culpa, but gives an unbelievable excuse. he writing -- i'm quoting him now -- mr. obama was ruthlessly efficient in executing an early negative campaign. the president was also lucky. this time the october surprise was not a dirty trick but an act of got. hurricane sandy interrupted mr. romney's momentum and allowed mr. obama to look presidential and bipartisan. so let me get this right. the -- mr. romney was soundly beaten both in the popular vote and the electoral college and the swing states that mattered the most? and it was all because of hurricane sandy? >> yeah, i think a less charitable person might be saying "and the dog ate my homework." in the 1980s, karl rove, a young political operative working in a democratic environment put together a memo. he explained how he was going to make the democrat ectexas political establishment a republican electo
neeratt tandon massachusetts senator john kerry, susan rice, national security adviser tom donilon. although there's been talk about the benghazi attacks may have hurt her chances. is kerry the front runner? >> kerry has a lot going for him because he has negotiated around the world. he's been senate foreign relations chair. he obviously spent a lot of time with the president. we shouldn't underestimate how important @ to have a real chemistry with the president. there's a lot of trust to develop. obviously president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton had a great chemistry and really relied on each other. there was a trust built up there. so i think that's the real test is whether the president can really trust john kerry to speak for him and he e spent a lot of time with him recently. so i think he has a good sense of that by now. >> there's been a lot of talk about by the president about bipartisanship. this is one area where people have suggested maybe he'd reach across the aisle and pick a republican. names mentioned included jon huntsman, chuck hagel and colin powell
, some people urged him senator john kerry the foreign relations chair, would be the best equipped for secretary of state, deval patrick in massachusetts would appoint a democrat, but then there would be a special election and that special election, scott brown, who's just defeated by elizabeth warren is primed and ready to go to have a good chance of taking one seat away from the democratic enhanced majority not something they want to give up. >> listen to mark's description of the foreign policy team, how many dominos he listed, how many jobs, how many vacancies. when you start going down through the cabinet, attorney general, for example, treasury secretary, this is where it gets interesting. there are people whose job it is, game these, i'll go to the president with options. this is the kind of president that has a lot of options in mind already. you have to be careful because special elections can do funny things and the result can be contrary to what the white house would like to see. >> brian, you've raised the subject of treasury secretary. jack lew is the chief negotiator
rice, but also against john kerry. sean hannidy said john kerry needs to be vetted. he served on the senate foreign affairs committee for 28 years. he was vetted when he got the bronze star in vietnam, when he got the silver star in vietnam, three purple hearts. now they are attacking susan rice, a stanford grad, a rhoads scholar, serves in the clinton administration and served as a u.n. ambassador. get over it. you lost last week. time for america to come together. it is a disgrace they are playing politics with our foreign policy. >> now, governor, senator mccain last month said -- well, let me let you hear what he said. this is amazing to me. >> it's very clear this was a colossal failure that cost the lives of four brave young americans. there has not been an intelligence fail like this in my lifetime and i have been around for a long time. >> there has not been an intelligence fail like this in his lifetime? what about 9/11? what about the iraq war with weapons of mass destruction where 3,000 americans died? what's he talking about? >> four americans are obviously four to
yesterday. you know, it's no secret that john kerry not only was interested in that job in 2008 after the election but remains interested in that job. so it remains to be seen now. there's a lot of talk for john kerry going down to the defense department. >> indeed. nbc's mike viqueira. thanks so much. we'll be right back to "clear the air." ah. fire bad! just have to fire roast these tomatoes. this is going to give you a head start on your dinner. that seems easier [ female announcer ] new progresso recipe starters. five delicious cooking sauces you combine with fresh ingredients to make amazing home-cooked meals.

in the after math 6 john kerry's loss,figure that can bring it b? >> part of what we did in 2005 in the after math 6 john kerry's loss, they're going through the same question. who is the leader of the sdmic party. and part of what we did frankly between governor dean and leadership in the house and the senate, we brought governors in and mayors in and kind of said how do we as a party better communicate our values. we looked at we're losing votes among people whom they share our values. so how do we do a better job of communicating those values. and think that's the kind of tough look that the republicans really are going to have to take in terms of where they go from here and what kind of party they want to be. >> but the democrats after '88, though, they he did a lot of soul searching and along came bill clinton. >> that's true. i just think in 2005 we were in a slightly different position. >> i think there's also a mechanical issue that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. and that is the nominating process for the gop. because you've had this exodus of independents. that needs
unqualifiable or unqualified for the position so they can appoint john kerry which opens up the senate seat to mass, let's deal with that later. the question for the governor. you affirm the intelligence assessments read on the sunday shows were wrong. and i think it's fair and obvious that the intelligence leading up to the attack was wrong and missed the attack. so can you talk about what type of massive or maybe not so massive intelligence failure occurred on the president's watch and what can be done to actually fix that? >> look, what the president has said and what is going on is an investigation. ambassador tom pickering, probably the most senior member conducting that investigation, you to read all of the e-mails, all of the cables, all of the meetings, and you make an assessment of who bears some responsibility in this issue. is it diplomatic security? is intelligence? i think there's another issue here which really concerns me and that at one point the disclosure of some of our libyan assets was made publicly by one of the house committees. i think we have to be very careful about
the confirmation hearings. john kerry is another huge option but that would open up the seat in massachusetts for the united states senate. perhaps scott brown would come roaring back and grab that one. i don't think either of these issues should get in the way of the president picking the best secretary of state. chuck hagel is said to be under consideration for defense. at the treasury department jack lew, our friend, is the favorite to pick tim geithner we hear. and they will be right back. change engineering in dubai, aluminum production in south africa, and the aerospace industry in the u.s.? at t. rowe price, we understand the connections of a complex, global economy. it's just one reason over 75% of our mutual funds beat their 10-year lipper average. t. rowe price. invest with confidence. request a prospectus or summary prospectus with investment information, risks, fees and expenses to read and consider carefully before investing. >>> with might be retiring that particular logo now because it may well be that the dirty money didn't get anywhere this election. back to "hardball" for so

's a republican governor. few senators names that get floated for various positions, john kerry for state, jack reid for defense. the situation in their states about, you know, democrats spent a lot of money to get 55 seats i don't know if they want to give up any right away. >> one question, florida, florida, florida, doesn't matter in terms of the presidency. does it matter? there will be a recount? >> well the way the law works, andrea, point one half of 1%, .5, .5 of 1% automatic recount. unless the losing candidate submits in writing to the secretary of state's office that they don't want one. so everybody's waiting to see what the final count is. our guys, shelly, thinks it was up to .51 which would be just above the automatic. so i think everybody's waiting for it. we've got three more counties. our man in florida, three more counties. let's get that in. should have it in in two days and then we'll find out if it's needed. i know the republican governor there is pressuring, there's pressure on boston, if it qualifies for a recount they would like the romney folks not ask for one. >> well
benghazi and her appearance on "meet the press" during the confirmation hearings. john kerry is another huge option, but that would open up the seat in massachusetts for the united states senate. perhaps scott brown would come roaring back and grab that one. i don't think either of these issues should get in the way of the president picking the best secretary of state. chuck hagel is said to be under consideration for defense. at the treasury department jack lew, our friend, is the favorite to replace tim geithner we hear. and we will be right back. >>> we might be retiring that particular logo now because it may well be that the dirty money didn't get anywhere this election. back to "hardball" for some good news for people who don't like too much money in politics. outside of mitt romney, karl rove might have been the biggest loser this election day. two days ago the political wizard spent the night on fox news denying reality as the returns came in on ohio and he couldn't believe them. wouldn't believe them. he also had a surprising lack of success when it came to the spending by his
are john kerry and u.n. ambassador susan rice, who has been caught up in the questions about benghazi. so if hillary clinton does leave, does that put more pressure on the president to go in a different direction other than susan rice? >> well, i'm only speculating now, because my reporting on this dates back to well before the election when i got a little bit focused there. i will say that if you talk to people in democratic establishment and political establishment on the hill and in national security circles, you do find that neither of those candidates is seen right now as a perfect choice. there are drawbacks to both of them. ambassador rice has a lot of supporters first and foremost, the president to be sure. controversy over her public statements about benghazi give people pause about whether she's the right person with a confirmation process over, whether she's the right person for the job. in the case of senator kerry, there's doubts from some people about whether he'd be the perfect secretary of state. he was passed over four years ago for secretary clinton. if you took him out
at dinner. the problem that he is going to have, though, frankly, if john kerry were to good over to state department, as appears likely, a lot of folks, particularly within the senate would like to see him run for the senate. they would like to bring him in. it helps with showing sort of the diversity gap between themselves and the gop, which i think harry reid is very eager to demonstrate. and he is really the only person right now in the state that could beat scott brown in a special election. none of the house members really have the name id or the sort of the juice to do it. so he is really the one. >> who else do you think, boyce? who else do you think goes? who comes? >> i think the most interesting one is state, what is going to happen. hillary clinton is obviously out. is it going to be kerry? if it is kerry, you have to look at the state of massachusetts. duval patrick would appoint himself. and there would be an election. to me that's just as important. i thought janet napolitano is someone who is at the top of the list. but she is someone who is considered to be pretty partisan
there if you will, in orange county in 2004 it was a narrow, as you see here, john kerry won it by about 1,000 votes. in 2008 the president won it by 19 points. look at that. 273,000 votes. look at the raw vote totals and look at what he did last tuesday. he won it by the same margin but, again, he increased his vote margin by a giant, by more votes than romney did over mccain. and finally, i want to get to osceola because osceola is the story of the expanded hispanic, if you will. if you look back 62%/37% for the president this time 67,000 votes to 40,000. to 2004 just to show you the dramatic shift in just eight years. bush won that county 52% to 47% but look at that, he got 43,000 votes then. again, let me show you the raw vote total of osceola for mitt romney this time. he got 40,000. just 3,000 votes less than president bush did and he won that county 62%, 37%. it shows you the huge growth. let me bring in adam smith because he is probably the most prolific political reporter these days at the tampa bay times. he lives in the i-4 corridor. he is probably one of these people that has s
into this. john kerry is still, you know, a contender for this. he would also make a very good secretary of state. i want to go back to the whole question of what capitol hill's engagement in this should be. i think in some ways we're looking -- we're asking some of the wrong questions. to my mind, in addition to the questions about what happened in this particular episode, we should revisit the state department's request for $300 million more in security for its embassies and consulates last, which was roundly rejected by republicans in congress. i believe that any republican who is on record rejecting that $300 million request to beef up security should answer questions from the press that have not been asked, i should note, as to why they objected to approving what the state department understandably felt was the need to improve its securities at those embassies. which needless to say, might have helped in this situation. >> of course, we look forward to hearing paul ryan's response to those questions. >> not just ryan, all of them. >> indeed. jonathan alter, nia-malika henderson, gol
the u.n. ambassador to the u.n., foreign policy adviser to john kerry, clinton administration '93 to 2001, a rhodes scholar, a ph.d. from oxford university. i mean, as was stated by rula, he didn't question condoleezza rice in 2005, when the whole world was questioning whether there was weapons of mass destruction. it was accepted that she was stating what was given to her. >> right. >> all miss rice did now, susan rice, was state what she was briefed on that day. >> and she was very clear. >> by the cia. >> right. and she was very clear about the ongoing uncertainty. i happen to know susan rice. i've known her for a decade. she's brilliant. so this notion that she's not qualified or she wasn't terribly bright in her remarks, it's really insulting. it's really personal. and yes, again, the man who put sarah palin -- tried to put sarah palin a heartbeat away from the presidency is questioning this woman. he also -- when he defended condi rice in 2005, there are great sound bites where he says, you know, there's nothing about the -- some of the democrats question it. there's nothing
presidential candidate, massachusetts senator john kerry, chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. another candidate? the president's national security adviser tom donilon, and perhaps a more controversial choice, u.n. ambassador susan rice, the obama administration's representative who gave the initial incorrect intelligence explanation of the benghazi attacks. still, most insiders believe rice and kerry are the two front-runners. white house veterans say clinton's eventual replacement will be on solid ground. >> the secretary of state in the second administration has the advantage of a president who has their bearings about what they want to accomplish around the world. >> in treasury the top candidate to replace timothy geithner white house chief of staff jack lew who has also served as the budget director. the president may decide to keep him where he is and perhaps look elsewhere to another senator or clinton administration veteran. at the pentagon leon panetta's departure may not occur until the spring but the list may include michele flournoy. she would be the first ever wo
he came out so strongly so that when he doesn't appoint her and goes with someone like john kerry or even tom donelan, his defense is already on record. and he doesn't have to relitigate that again in the press. >> i'll tell you what i saw yesterday, issue aside, i saw a president with a heightened level of testosterone, gravitas, and maybe a precursor of what he's going to look like the next four years. i saw a definite different kick to his step. obviously, he's been going toe to toe, but there was an authority, there was a -- i'm going to keep using the word "testosterone." a lot of that was missing in the first term, and i found that very interesting, his first kind of public volley eight days later as a harbinger of things to come. >> he spoke quickly in that press conference. did you notice? it was the fastest i've ever heard him speak. you know, we got accustomed over the past four years to a very slow, methodic kind of elongated speech pattern. and he came out, he was rapid, he was quick. >> you got a problem? come to me. i found that very interesting. >> richard, what are
? >> state is tough for me. i have a hard time seeing john kerry get the job he wants and replacing hillary clinton because that would open up a senate seat and presumably scott brown of massachusetts would slide in. i think the interesting one is treasury. jack lew obviously is a good candidate. one thing bouncing around the sphere is mitt romney who has experience there. but, you know, i think it's going to be hard to -- hard to see where the chips fall. obviously you want someone with a bit of outreach to wall street, but, you know, someone like a tony james, a private equity executive who is tied with the democrat, it's hard to see after this race and mitt romney having been the opponent, a guy like that fitting in. certainly somebody -- >> you need to head it where do you go in the blogosphere, i think. be careful. >> okay. okay. yeah. well, i'm not -- i'm not predicting romney but he's one of the most interesting names out there. but certainly somebody -- another serious name who could deal with fiscal cliff. >> that would be a great man. >> the state thing is interesting because as j
